One of my sneaky children liberated this yarn from my stash and gave it to me for mother’s day!
So this will be the next sock project – after the Covid socks. I am going to pick a pattern from the
book. 52 Weeks of Sock
No new T.V series to report on – I gave up on
The Last Kingdom (too violent for me). I am looking forward to the new series . The Great
I needed to knit something that didn’t require as much concentration as my
roadside beanie, so I started knitting my corona sock – just working on the cuff at the moment.
The Miniaturist and have started the latest season (season 4?) of – possibly too violent for me (someone got an arrow in the eye – ergh) The Last Kingdom
This probably doesn’t look much different for yesterday, but I have started on Chart E (only Chart F left after this). I also have all of those ends to weave in.
We watched the second episode of
The Miniaturist – just one more to go. The production design is fabulous.
As the socks are finished, I have returned to my
Roadside Beanie – I think I achieved two rounds last night.
I am now watching
– there are only three episodes, so that’s not going to take long to finish. The Miniaturist
Socks are finished
As predicted I finished the socks last night (and
Normal People). I need to block them, but it’s a rainy day here so I am going to wait for better drying weather.
I am up to the toe – I use the toe construction that Kate Atherley has in her
book. Custom Socks
Still making my way through
Normal People, maybe two episodes to go? The socks and TV series might finish at the same time.
Progress on Sock 2
I have been getting a bit of knitting done in the evenings while watching TV (currently making our way through
). Normal People
I am almost to the toe – I get about 12 rounds done per evening.
Progress on Sock 2
I have just checked and I haven’t mentioned these socks before.
Here is the finished one
This is my interpretation of
Helen Stewart’s Shell Cottage pattern.
I am using yarn from
Fiber Lily (Ebb colourway – I originally bought it to make a shawl, but given that I don’t wear shawls I decided to make socks instead).
Garter Point Lace Edging
Late last year I subscribed to Bluprint (formerly Craftsy), it was a good deal and the subscription came with vouchers to buy 12 classes outright.
I have done some of the other classes and enjoyed them. The format suits me – I can watch when I want and work through the homework as I have time.
In this strange world we now find ourselves (below is an image of our local playground – roped off for the foreseeable future) I decided I had a bit of time and space to work on some of the classes.
I am currently working on
Heirloom Lace Edgings, the teacher is Franklin Habit. He is a good teacher, he explains things well. The first photo shows my homework – I have knitted the centre (the thing to which I am going to attach my lace) and now I am working on the lace.
Sock Knitting Project Bag
I have made a new project bag for my sock knitting. I wanted it to fit my knitting (obviously) and an A5 notebook. I also like the zip closure rather than a drawstring.
The machine embroidery design is from
